La Paz, the laidback Baja California Sur capital, draws visitors from around the world with an array of eco-tourism attractions to please lovers of nature and the great outdoors.
With access to around 900 islands, including the chalk-white Isla Espiritu Santo islands in the Bay of La Paz, this is the place for whale-watching, swimming, snorkeling and diving.
Take a day cruise, or try your hand at fishing, sailing and kayaking from the world-class marinas. Meet the local animals at bio reserves, including all manner of reptiles from turtles to iguanas at the Serpentarium.
Museums chart the history of the peninsula, from cave paintings to the Cortez and colonial mission architecture. La Paz is also a gourmet’s paradise, and a great place to indulge a passion for Mexican food.
Great experiance, its a long trip but its worth it. La Paz shopping and in between stops and you get to know the real Mexican calture. If you go on this trip you do not need to go on Todos SantosTour.
It was pretty good. Had more fun at the small village stops on the way there and back. The blanket factory was excellent. Our driver was really nice and informative. I would love to take a shorter trip to the smaller villages we stopped at on the way back to our resort.
La Paz is on the southern tip of the Mexican peninsula, around 140 miles (225 km) or a 3-hour drive north of Los Cabos.
The city sits on the famed Bay of La Paz, and enjoys mild winter temperatures and moderated summer highs thanks to the afternoon sea breeze.
